World Fringe Day

Fort Collins Fringe Festival is turning 5 but the Fringe movement is turning 70!

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe was the world’s first Fringe back in 1947. Fast forward 70 years there are now more than 200 Fringes worldwide. 2017 marks 70 years since the birth of the Fringe concept.

Join us on World Fringe Day on 11 July 2017 as we celebrate Fringe reaching this incredible milestone, and the cultural connections that transcend national boundaries, demonstrating the connectivity of arts and culture through Fringes.

More information about the our Global Birthday Party here!

"We can’t wait to join with our sister fringes across the world to celebrate the wonder and joy of fringe festivals in this auspicious year. This is an incredible opportunity for fringe organizers, venues, participants and audiences to take part in a truly international celebration of creativity that will transcend national boundaries, demonstrating the power of arts and culture to bring people together. "

Shona McCarthy, Chief Executive of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society

Free Family Fringe

  • Old Town Square

On July 29th from 10am-1pm The Fort Collins Fringe Festival will take over Old Town Square for Free Family Fringe. Just like it sounds this is an entire morning of Free-Family Friendly entertainment. As Fringe, we think that theatre should be accessible to all people from different walks of life regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, socio-economic position, or AGE! So this is our chance to give back to the community we adore and share what we love to do with you! Bring the whole family and join us and our artists for a very fun afternoon!

  • Wolverine Farm and Publick House

Come have some fun, Fringe style! 

As a kick-off to Fringe Season, we'll be having a Mix & Mingle & Open Mic night at the Wolverine Letterpress & Publick House at 5pm-7:30pm.

Bring your friends, have some drinks and get people excited about your show. Best of all, this is where we'll be announcing the festival schedule and line up! Meet the other artists, recite a bit of your show, meet our adoring Fringe audience, write a haiku about Fringe Festivals, get some sweet marketing photos, and more (if you are out of town, feel free to send in a little video!). 

Signups for the open-mic portion will be coming soon. Donations to support the Fringe are greatly apprciated and accepted at the door so bring some cash if you're feeling fringy.
